Anokiwave Introduces New Family of Scalable Active Antenna Innovator Kits

Anokiwave’s new Innovator’s Kit enables manufacturers to quickly prototype, develop, and commercially introduce mmW 5G radios

AWA-0213 Scalable Active Antenna

San Diego, CA, 24 March 2021: Anokiwave, Inc., today announced the introduction of the first in a family of a complete mmW to IF Phased Array Antenna Innovator Kits to assist 5G equipment manufacturers to easily evaluate array level performance of Anokiwave’s ICs, develop new mmW 5G NR radio front ends, and to utilize this platform to accelerate their radio developments. The new AWA-0213-PAK is 28 GHz band (n257/n261) Active Antenna built upon Anokiwave’s 3rd Generation silicon ICs and features the performance of our patented Zero-Cal® at an array level. The Innovator Kit includes a complete mmW to IF active antenna, PCB, connectors for IF and LO connections all enclosed in a passively cooled enclosure with power and digital interfaces.

Design of mmW Phased Array Active Antennas continues to be a major technical challenge for most OEMs, system integrators, and radio manufacturers; most struggle to develop good working arrays especially in a fast-evolving 5G market. Anokiwave envisions these new Antenna Innovator Kits along with its high-performance silicon ICs will allow radio manufacturers to develop high performance mmW 5G radios, at a commercial scale and at a much faster pace.

These kits offer manufacturers with:

  • A real working evidence of the near ideal performance they can achieve using Anokiwave’s ICs and
  • A starting platform to scale the design to meet each specific use case. Eventually each radio manufacturer will design, customize, and develop their antennas, based on these Innovator Kits, to meet their specific radio requirements.

“Anokiwave designed, developed, and tested these Active Antennas 100% in-house, in 1/3rd the time of a typical commercial Active Antenna development, and achieved near ideal performance in the first pass design. This speaks to the decades of mmW active antenna expertise the company has developed,”, states Abhishek Kapoor, VP Sales. “Anokiwave itself is a fabless semiconductor IC company, with the goal to provide enabling ICs for mmW Active Antennas; our customers are the ones that design and deliver 5G radios. We hope these kits will provide them with another tool and a starting platform to accelerate their radio developments while offering complete flexibility on every aspect of their radio design.”

Please contact Anokiwave for additional details on how to purchase these Innovator Kits and to leverage Anokiwave ICs for 5G developments.
